I keep getting posts in my facebook feed from friends that live in other provinces regarding having fun at a Paint Nite event. These posts usually display their artwork that was created during these paint nite events. So I thought I would check out and share what all the fuss is about. 

I was impressed to see that Paint Nite is actually quite the Global Community with Local artists offering this all over North America, South America, Africa and growing. The idea behind it is to spend 2 hours with friends and other locals creating "painting masterpieces" while socializing at a local bar or restaurant. I put the masterpieces in parentheses because you don't have to have an artistic bone in your body to take part and have a good time. The idea is to get out and socialize while doing something fun and different! 

Dan Hermann and Sean McGrail are the founders of Paint Nite which started up in 2012. They were inspired by a party they had in a paint studio where alcohol was served. Their goal is everything local, by supporting local artists, bars and restaurants willing to host the Paint Nite events. 

I first thought this was a new trend...I do think it is a fairly new trend. Seems to be very popular on the American east coast but there are quite a few venues here in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. I was quite surprised to see how many upcoming events were already sold out. 

What a great idea to do with a group of friends! To find out more about Paint Nite events in your area visit their website in the following link: Paint Nite
